The rollneck jumper – Major trend for knitwear this winter. You can wear it on its own as an alternative to a shirt or use it as a layered piece underneath another item of knitwear. You could also try it with a blazer or a suit for a 60s inspired look.
Printed shirt – Designers continue to add graphic elements to their collections. Floral, camouflage, polka dot and abstract printed shirts set out to be a key piece this winter. If you feel overwhelmed by bold designs start with a subtle microprint or check pattern for a smart visual look to lift your every day outfit. If you can carry off a pattern explosion please remember to balance it with a solid coloured tie.
Unconstructed Blazer – One of the main tailoring styles for this season is a three button unconstructed blazer with rounded shoulders and a slightly shorter length. If you’re looking for a feeling of comfort without compromising on the fit explore designs by Italian brand Barena Venezia. Their wool blend blazers offer a great alternative to a more button-up tailoring. Perfect when you want to look smart but feel comfortable.
Denim – A good pair of jeans will become a backbone of your wardrobe. Denim for winter should be dark: black, black blue or grey. For a modern look chose styles designed for a slim silhouette. The slimmer cut guarantees sharper lines and better fit. Stretch also plays important role to accommodate slim and skinny shapes so you can actually bend your legs! Paige and AG denim brands offer many variations on the slim cut jeans to fit most builds.
Trousers – The growing trend is for more generously cut pants however the tailored, slightly cropped tapered leg trousers will still have a big impact this winter. You could do no wrong wearing Tiger of Sweden black Transit trousers in cotton-dyed twill or slim fit Harris in wool stretch poplin. If you’re a fan of J Linderberg classic chinos add another pair to your wardrobe in dark navy or dark grey malange flannel twill.
Shoes – Every man needs a good pair of shoes! Cheaney lace up Chukka boots, masterfully crafted in England from supple leather with no detailing, are classic and timeless. This versatile style can be worn with anything from casual looks to tailored smart suiting.
Scarf – Let’s not forget about accessories. When autumn comes knocking at your door the simplest way to update your wardrobe is with a new scarf. If you decide to buy one this season make sure that it is a big one. Wrapped it around your neck a single time or wear it twice-looped with a knot.
We have given you Dappad’s passport to winter style and are hoping that you will fly into the colder weather looking stylish, feeling confident and warm.
